Nikon 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR

200f2
Review Date: Mar 5, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $4,200.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: My favorite lens! Ridiculous IQ! I have never looked back after purchasing this lens. I'm stunned on occasion by the images it produces. Very fast AF.
Cons:
It is heavy with a D3x! Get a tripod!

I had a 300mm f/2.8, but lusted for this lens. Broke down and bought this bad boy and suddenly became a much better photographer. It produces images that make people look twice. Sharpness is like a razor. Bokeh is so creamy. This is without trying hard. It does all the heavy lifting.....photographically speaking. It is a heavy rig with my D3x. But is it so worth the effort. Get a monopod! I am a fan of RRS, so I got the RRS foot for this lens. If you can afford this lens, it will bless your photography with great images!

Pros: Fast. Awesome portrait lens. You can throw foreground or background out of focus. I use it strictly to blur background. Very good detail.
Cons:
Expensive

I actually look forward to using this lens. You can do a portrait in a landfill and make it look incredible. It is one of my favorite lens.
